There is a touchpad lock on this laptop. When the lock is activated, you should see a yellow/orange light on the touchpad. Simply tap twice where the light is and the touchpad will be unlocked.

Hope it helps.

I have a HP Probook 4421s and my touchpad is locked. How do I unlock it?

Two options

It may be set to automatically turn off if you have a mouse plugged in. Simply unplug the mouse. You may have to restart the computer after you unplug the mouse for the touch pad to turn on.

Option 2. go to the Start > Control panel > mouse
Click the touchpad tab to make adjustments. Make sure the touchpad is not disabled there.
You should also be able to disable the "turn off it mouse detected" feature on this tab.

Please rate me and good luck.

I have a HP Probook laptop and my mouse (touch pad) is locked & I don't know how to unlock it. I have tried turning it off and removing the battery.

Based on the User Guide :

Turning the TouchPad on and off

The TouchPad is turned on at the factory. When the TouchPad zone is active, the light is off.
To turn the TouchPad on and off, quickly double-tap the TouchPad off indicator.

the indicator is on the top left side of TouchPad zone.

Good Luck

My touchpad has locked on my ProBook 4720s. How do i unlock it. the orange light stays on on the top left corner of pad.

Hi there,
Simply tap twice on the orange light and your pad will be working again, this is basically a lock like the HP had in earlier which was made enable/disable by Fn+F7 key, As a new advancement its a lock and also indicator, when you see orange light it means that touchpad is locked, for unlocking simply tap twice on the orange light on touchpad, and it will start working again
